CABIN AIR FILTER


Your vehicle cabin air filter gives you and
your passengers the following benefits:
• It improves your driving comfort by
reducing particle concentration.
• It improves the interior compartment
cleanliness.
• It protects the climate control
components from particle deposits.
• It reduces unpleasant odor and
pollutants (vehicles fitted with odor
filter).
The cabin air filter is behind the glove box.
Replace the filter at regular intervals.
Make sure you have a cabin air filter
installed at all times.
This prevents foreign objects from entering
the system.
Running the system without a filter in place
could degrade or damage the system.

WARNING
People who are unable to feel pain

must exercise care when using the heated

even at low temperatures, especially if
used for long periods of time. Do not place
anything on the seat that insulates against
heat, such as a blanket or cushion. This
may cause the heated seat to overheat.
Do not puncture the seat with pins, needles
or other pointed objects. This may damage
the heating element which may cause the
heated seat to overheat. An overheated
seat may cause serious personal injury.

Do not do the following:


• Place heavy objects on the seat.
• Operate the heated seat if water or any
other liquid spills on the seat. Allow the

• Other appliances requiring an
extremely stable power supply such as
microcomputer-controlled electric

E206133

You can use the power point for powering


electrical devices that require up to 150
watts. It is on the rear of the center
console.
The power point indicator light, located on
the power point, shows when the power
point is ready for use.
When the power point indicator light is:
• On — the power point is ready to supply
power.
• Off — the power point power supply is
off and so is the ignition.
• Flashing — the power point is in fault
mode, or the battery voltage is to low.
The power outlet temporarily turns off
power when in fault mode if the device
exceeds the 150 watt limit. Unplug your
device and switch the ignition off. Switch
the ignition back on, but do not plug your
device back in. Let the system cool off and
switch the ignition off to reset the fault
mode. Switch the ignition back on and
make sure the indicator light remains on.
Do not use the power point for certain
electric devices, including:
• Cathode-ray, tube-type televisions.
• Motor loads, such as vacuum cleaners,
electric saws and other electric power
tools or compressor-driven
refrigerators.

Traction Control

PRINCIPLE OF OPERATION
The traction control system helps avoid
drive wheel spin and loss of traction.
If your vehicle begins to slide, the system
applies the brakes to individual wheels
and, when needed, reduces engine power
at the same time. If the wheels spin when
accelerating on slippery or loose surfaces,
the system reduces engine power in order
to increase traction.

USING TRACTION CONTROL


Traction control forms part of the stability
control system.
Note: The system automatically turns on
every time you switch the ignition on.
Note: Switching off the stability control will
turn off the system.
In certain situations (e.g. stuck in snow or
mud), turning the system off may be
beneficial as this allows the wheels to spin
with full engine power.
Traction control is an enhanced feature of
stability control system and automatically
detects the wheel spin when you
accelerate. If this situation occurs, the
system applies your vehicle brakes at
individual wheels and if necessary, reduces
engine power.
Note: Shifting to 4x4 Low deactivates
engine traction control but brake traction
control remains active.
To switch off the traction control, See
Using Stability Control (page 141).

Troubleshooting the System

The system does not look for a space

The traction control system is off.


The transmission is in reverse (R). Your vehicle must be moving forward to be able to
detect a parking space.

The system does not offer a particular space

The sensors may be covered (for example, snow, ice or dirt buildup). Covered senors
can affect the system's functionality.
There is not enough room in the parking space for your vehicle to safely park.
There is not enough space for the parking maneuver on the opposite side of the parking
space.
The parking space is farther than 1.5 m or closer than 0.4 m away.
The transmission is in reverse (R). Your vehicle must be moving forward to be able to
detect a parking space.
Your vehicle is going faster than 35 km/h for parallel parking.

The system does not position the vehicle where I want in the space

Your vehicle is rolling in the opposite direction of the transmission (rolling forward with
reverse [R] selected).
An irregular curb along the parking space prevents the system from aligning your vehicle
properly.
Vehicles or objects bordering the space may not be positioned correctly.
You pulled your vehicle too far past the parking space. The system performs best when
you drive the same distance past the parking space.
The tires may not be installed or maintained correctly (not inflated correctly, improper
size, or of different sizes).
A repair or alteration has changed detection capabilities.
